with its five axis image stabilization, it brings up the point that Sony has indeed fallen behind the competition, which was the original point of this thread.

Sony is still using a 2-axis image stabilization. Pentax is using a 3-axis image stabilization. And Olympus has a 5-axis image stabilization.

Hopefully, Sony will get on the ball and bring out a new stabilization for the A-mount bodies.

Sure 5 is bigger than 2, but where is the evidence that it produces better results? What counts here, marketing blurb or the actual performance? If you show me that there is a significant, quantitative increase in performance with the Olympus stabilisation system then I'll agree with you, but I won't buy it just because of the number of stabilisation axes.
